Feeling old? Try a bite of summer

Recently my wife asked me “What’s wrong with you; take a look at your face!”  I barked back, “What are you talking about? I’m fine!” Then I looked in the mirror and got scared. How did this strange, angry, depressed guy get into my mirror? What the hell happened to the ‘happy go lucky, fun loving me’ I once knew? “I’ll tell you what happened…”, I growled to myself, “I’m feeling old”. Now, I understand that ‘feeling old’ is a relative thing; it depends on who your relatives are, genetically speaking.  But seriously, this is something different, a new level...

Helping Employees Handle Eldercare

Posted by in eldercare, employee issues, health issues, Keynote | 0 comments

Eldercare responsibilities are a reality in today’s workplace, costing employers $47 billion per year! According to MetLife cost surveys, these stressed-out, distracted employees cost businesses $33.6 Billion a year in lost productivity. The number of employees who are shouldering eldercare responsibilities is about to explode as the largest generation, ‘Baby boomers’, postpone retirement while juggling multiple caregiving, work and personal responsibilities. Not only are ‘boomers’ raising children, but over one-half provide care for an aging parent. They also result in additional...

There’s a New Wolf in Town

Posted by in Keynote, productivity, Uncategorized, workshops | 2 comments

The sheer speed, volume, and ready access to information, anywhere and anytime presents us with unique unprecedented challenges when it comes to what we choose to ‘feed our psyche.  This, it seems, is the ‘new wolf in town’. Aggressive, cunning, and stealthy, this wolf has an insatiable need for constant stimulation, wreaking havoc on our nervous systems and peace of mind.  This wolf wants us do more, keep busy 24/7 and 365; checking and rechecking  email, texting,  buying the latest whatever, joining social networks (simply to have more ‘friends’) and,  perhaps worst of all,...

Gut Buster Moments

We’ve all had them, those deep belly laughs, ‘gut buster’ moments. They feel so good- the best cure for stress and negativity. We need more of them! Imagine a world in which everyone laughs out loud and uncontrollably at least once a day. I’m talking; ‘please stop, no really please stop you’re killing me’, kind of belly aching laughter that seems to happen so rarely but is so good for us. Seriously, I’m talking about ‘I haven’t laughed this hard since the time Bob sneezed during the manager’s luncheon with a mouth full of...

Are you practicin’ relaxin’?

Modern life pushes to do more, think less, and react to whatever seems most urgent. Sure, we get a lot done, but on the whole, we’re not very happy while we very stressed out! Stress is  killing us, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The number of American workers who consider stress to be a major problem in their lives has more than doubled during the past ten years. 62% percent of American workers say their workload has increased over the last six months; 53% say work leaves them “overtired and overwhelmed. Moreover, the modern brain, over exposed to electronic stimuli,...

Early Morning Humility

Posted by in Keynote, Uncategorized, workshops | 0 comments

Just recently I had an early morning flight from San Diego to the east coast. For some reason I figured that because my flight was at 6am, the security line would be short and I breeze right through. I don’t know why I assumed this but I did and was wrong!  The line was long and I immediately felt anxious and began to worry that I would not make my flight. I tend to stress about flying anyway; whom will I sit next to? Will my flight be on time? And so on. So my anxiety and stress level is building. I am looking for a way to get close to the front of the line. A woman just in front of me...
